Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Cute

See it if you love cute kid shows with catchy songs especially ones based on familiar books.

Don't see it if you don't like kid shows or you don't like the Pete the Cat books.

Fluffy, Funny

See it if you have young children and want to see something enjoyable for kids.

Don't see it if you are an adult and have no children.

"A high-energy, irrepressibly cheerful whirl, more charming than it is hilarious. Directed and choreographed by Dan Knechtges, the show is so thoroughly wholesome that I waited in vain for a litter-box joke. But Sarah Hammond, who wrote the book and lyrics, does have fun...The show also gets plenty of punch from Will Aronson’s pop-rock score...It’s delivered by a thoroughly committed cast."

"An energetic and completely delightful production...Packed with nine toe-tapping, high-octane numbers in its succinct 50-minutes, 'Pete’s' music jams with an early rock-and-roll feel. Book and lyrics are giddy fun, clear enough for the tots to follow and clever enough to not bore or annoy the parents...The cast portrays the dozen or so parts with vivaciousness and warmth...A fantastic, super-high-energy, thoughtfully crafted and produced production."

“‘Pete the Cat’ purrs right along. Just ask the hyped-up kid-filled audience…Aronson’s breezy, upbeat score and Hammond’s lively book and lyrics capture Pete's charms. This delightful show boasts a '60s’ can-do vibe that endears Pete to the audience...Porter and Carter are spot-on...As Pete, Sherman brings a boatload of enthusiasm and his own brand of kooky warmth. All legs and tail, his wide grin and boundless energy is the engine that drives this well-crafted effort.”

"The 45-minute musical, recommended for ages 5-8, is nonstop action, with lively singing and dancing throughout, and plenty of funny jokes and scenes guaranteed to make kids laugh...The one plot point that irked me was the little sister's infatuation with Pete...All the characters are played by adults, and if your kids are fans of the book and expect to see Pete looking like himself, they may be disappointed at first."
